Sugar Free Chcolate Quinoa Bowl, Trim Healthy Mama E

This trim healthy mama e chocolate quinoa bowl is so simple and delicious!

I have been wanting to try some different recipes using quinoa. Quinoa is gaining in popularity. Not only is it very versatile, it can replace brown rice in many recipes, it is also very healthy! Healthy, chocolate and breakfast?!?! I am in! You can use leftover cooked quinoa if you have some handy. I made mine fresh.

I made my quinoa differently than I have before.

I toasted it dry in a saucepan (a skillet would work as well). After toasting it, I added water. I used 1 cup of quinoa and 1 3/4 cup of water. I ended up with 3 cups of cooked quinoa. It turned out fluffy and not mushy at all. I cooked it a few minutes with the lid off and fluffed it a little bit. I haven’t had my quinoa turn out so perfectly before.

If you want to just make a quadruple recipe, times everything by 4.

I plan on taking the rest of my quinoa and make 3 more servings of this chocolate quinoa breakfast bowl. As written, this recipe has the right amount of sweetness and chocolate. You can always add a little more sweetener if you like yours to be sweeter. I only had a fresh banana and fresh blueberries on hand. They turned out perfect!! I plan on trying some frozen cherries for at least one of my next bowls. Use berries/fruits that you like to eat. Let me know what combination you try.

  • If making 4 servings of quinoa, follow these instructions. In a saucepan or skillet, over medium to medium high heat, toast for a few minutes. When you start to hear "popping" it is done.
  • Add 1 3/4 cup of water. Bring to a boil. Stir. Place the lid on. Set a timer for 15 minutes.
  • When the timer goes off, take the lid off, and fluff. Allow to cook for a minute or two longer.
  • I ended up with 3 cups of cooked quinoa. I took 1/4 of that- 3/4 cup and placed it back in the saucepan. Add the 1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk.
  • Cook until the almond milk is almost completely absorbed.
  • In a small bowl (I used the bowl I was going to eat out of) mix the cocoa powder, sweetener, salt, and collagen.
  • Add to the quinoa. Add the vanilla. Stir and cook until thick.
  • Pour into your bowl and top with desired toppings.
  • Eat.
